This tutorial is for Super Zip users so that they can know and make use of the app better.
In this quick guide, we cover the following topics: basic tools and features, password-protected archives, create new archives, open archives, add files to an archive, and extract archives.
Basic Tools and Features
Create new archives
Create New Archives
When a folder (but not an archive file) is open in the file manager, the "Add" button on the toolbar is to create new archives. If you select some sub-folders and/or files and then click "Add", the sub-folders and/or files will be archived in the new archive file. If you don't select anything and click "Add", the whole current folder will be archived in the new archive file. By default, the new archive file name is the selected folder or file name. However, you can always change it in the prompt window by clicking the "..." button. If you would like your new archive file to be password-protected, check the checkbox "With password". With the file name and the password option, click the "Archive" button, fill in the password if required, then the new archive file is created.
The newly created archive file is located in the current folder. Double click to open it, now you can add files, delete existing files and folders in it. All your modifications will be automatically saved.
Note: you can only create .Zip files using this app.
Open Archive Files
With the archive file open, you can view what items are in it. You can also add files, delete existing files and folders in it. All your modifications will be automatically saved.
Note: if it is a password-protected archive file, you DO NOT need the password to open it, but you do need to input the password to extract the items from it.
Note: in the file manager, if you need to change to a different disk, you have to input the path in the top address bar using keyboard. There is now way for you to change to different disk using mouse in this app.
With the new or existing archive file open, you can add files to the archive file by clicking "Add" button on the top toolbar.
You can add more than one files into the archive file all at once.
With the new or existing archive file open, you can delete files and folders by selecting them and clicking "Delete" button on the top toolbar.
You can delete more than one file and folder in the archive file all at once.
In order to extract an archive file, you need to either open it or select it in the file manager, then click the "Extract" button on the top toolbar. By default, the destination folder is a new subfolder in the current folder. You can always change it by clicking the button "..." in the prompt window, then click the button "Extract", fill in the password if asked, and all the items in the archive file will be extracted there.
